Eric de Broche des Combes
Based in Paris (France), Eric de Broche is a DPLG architect and graphic designer born in 1971 at le Corbusier's Citée Radieuse in Marseilles. He studied architecture under the sun at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure d’Architecture de Marseilles until 1997. After a post graduate cycle at the GAMSAU - Groupe de Recherche pour l'Application des Méthodes Scientifiques à l'Architecture et à l'Urbanisme - he founded his first visualization office Auralab, followed a few years later by Luxigon. Strong visual experiences in a highly codified and somewhat boring field, his images quickly seduce famous architectural firms – OMA, MVRDV, REX, KPF, SOM just to name but a few – who have in turn promoted Luxigon as one of the most distinctive 3D renderings studios worldwide.
He still works as an architect through Buro-BC – a company focused exclusively on architectural projects - and has recently started a research group,called Le Nirvalab, devoted to experimental approaches in the conception and communication of projects.
